Protocol are currently recruiting on behalf of one of the biggest providers of apprenticeships and training in North Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire. As they embark on the next stage of our ambitious plans we are looking to recruit a committed and experienced Study Skills tutor.

The role is permanent and full-time!

The college are undergoing a period of significant change in the Library Service, and wider organisation, as they  move towards a blended learning approach.

The role

The college are in the process of introducing lots of new digital services and resources in the Library Service which you will help to develop in this role. They need a strong study skills presence for both FE and HE students. You will lead on the Library’s study skills offering for Level 3, Access and HE learners (in both classroom-based and work-based learning), and deliver tailored support to these areas across the colleges. This may include in-class sessions, 1-2-1 support, virtual support and video tutorials/online activities.

You will also support the Knowledge and Skills Lead to reach more Level 1 and 2 learners with study skills support. This will be achieved through working closely with colleagues in curriculum areas and Quality, as well as staff in the Library Service. This role will support a wider shift in the Library Service towards more digital services and away from the concept of the Library as simply a physical space. This person will be out and about around college (virtually or physically!) and will be highly visible to curriculum staff.

The Study Skills Practitioner role is designed to be closely aligned to the Ofsted EIF, and it is hoped that this will support the college move towards a ‘Good’ Ofsted category (and then ‘Outstanding’). Key parts of this are to help learners achieve higher grades, and to help learners reach their full potential. The role will also help us to maintain our TEF Gold status as a HE provider by offering high-quality and tailored support to HE learners.

The person

Have you got what it takes to be successful?

-You will have experience of working in an educational setting and of teaching or delivering support to learners, particularly teenagers and adults.

-You will have experience of developing digital tools and resources.

-You will have, or be willing to work towards, a Librarianship/Information/Knowledge Management qualification at Level 4 or above as well as Level 2 Literacy and Numeracy. 

-You may also hold an appropriate teaching qualification at level 3 of above and/or a digital accreditation in education, such as Google Educator, Apple Teacher or Microsoft Certified Educator.
